MIDNIGHT FUNERAL AT SEA

Red Star line. The Finland left

a storm just outside the English

At midnight, December 3, in a
howling gale with mountainous seas,
the Finland's engines stopped. Wil

put on a heavy coat and went on
deck. He saw a group of Beamen
going aft, carrying something, and
The object was borne to the stern
and placed on deck. Several officers
of the ship were waiting, among
them the purser, Isidor Dubois. Wil
son soon found that he was witness
ing a midnight funtral in midocean.
Little time was wasted in cere
many. The purser read a prayer,
the seamen picked up the long, black
object from the deck and slid it
over the rail. In a few minutes the
vessel was throbbing again from the
pulsation of the engines, and away
astern the body of Frank De Vos,
ship's cook, who had died a few
hours before, was sinking into the
